The Shell House,Salamanca Leica M2

A simple record of a scene repeated in several early Leica Handbooks from the 1960's when the area became popular with tourists from Northern Europe.Lighting is difficult and the shadows of the shells appear in most photographs! Leica M2  with Type 1 Summicron f2 lens kindly tweaked and reconditioned by Malcolm Taylor. Film was ,strange to say, Ilford Delta  100 in Perceptol 1;3 which is a stunning combination IF one has the light as ASA falls to 50 or so in my experience.
